The school spirit, by far. It's unbelievable. The love for the school here is stronger than any school I've ever attended or visited: and stronger than any city's love for their city/sports teams, either.
Some people may find this attractive, but the partying scene is way too prominent. Granted, they do provide various activities for those who don't want to drink, and I have not yet explored those. However, I wish there were more people here who just wanted to hang out and maybe drink casually some weekend nights (and not every weeknight, for that matter). That way, occasional drinkers wouldn't have to choose between a routine rager with their friends or a night painting with a bunch of strangers.
Yes, I'm just beginning, but every day has its ups and downs. There is just too much to explore here to pass up the opportunity.
